Herbert West: Reanimator - Part 6 - The Tomb-Legions by H. P. Lovecraft




This a Forbidden Dragon recording. Read by Marlo Dianne.

Part VI of VI (6 of 6).

When Dr. Herbert West disappeared a year ago, the Boston police questioned me closely. They suspected that I was holding something back, and perhaps suspected graver things; but I could not tell them the truth because they would not have believed it. They knew, indeed, that West had been connected with activities beyond the credence of ordinary men; for his hideous experiments in the reanimation of dead bodies had long been too extensive to admit of perfect secrecy; but the final soul-shattering catastrophe held elements of daemoniac phantasy which make even me doubt the reality of what I saw...

Convinced that death is merely mechanical failure, and that they can find a chemical mechanism to reboot the machine, West and our nameless narrator, are on the hunt for bodies--the fresher, the better. Through graveyards and laboratories, they want to find death, chase it, trap it, prod it, and defeat it. But when you chase something to within arm's reach, it can reach back...

Published in 1922 as a six part serial, Herbert West: Reanimator is a classic story of sci-fi and horror by H. P. Lovecraft. Atmosphere, language, and science blend effortlessly, timeless in this gruesome tale of a doctor of death.
